La Démarrante, Cote de Brouilly
By Pete's Provisions
WHY WE LOVE THIS WINE
La Démarrante 2021 (“the starter”) is just that – an excellent entrée to the Dupré-Goujon lineup. Goujon described it as something you’d find in a “bar à vin,” a refreshing, juicy, Beaujolais embodying the region’s jubilant, joie de vivre spirit. The nose shows cherry fruits, sweet spices, and peony; the mouth is crisp and lively with nice concentration and a fine mineral finish. This is a Beaujolais in the most fun sense of the word.
ABOUT THE WINERY
It doesn’t take an expert to notice that Guillaume Goujon and Sebastien Dupré are farming organically. Their vines, located in the Côte de Brouilly, share the earth with an impressive array of herbs, flowers, grasses, and wildlife. In the cellar Dupré and Goujon have a similarly light touch – their cuvées are made with whole clusters, ambient yeasts, limited oak and almost no sulfites.
